From the Pro ~ November 2022

Dear Members,

It’s hard to believe but our tournament season has officially ended. There is good news though as this coming week looks fantastic for Golf and the season may not be done yet! 

Ray’s Revenge and our Pumpkin Par-3 had fantastic weather and great attendance for both. Check out Ligonier Country Club’s Facebook page to see one of the treacherous holes the grounds crew made.

All in all, this year has been fantastic, from the outside parties to great weather, to wonderful social and golf events. We thank all who participated and hope you enjoyed yourselves when playing. We strive to bring you the best events, format wise, entertainment wise and next year will be no different, if not better.

The year is coming to an end and changes like driving range closure, hours, score posting, and others are here. Please be sure to read the details below.

Lastly, with the Golf Season coming to an end, it is now Holiday Season. If you have something in mind for that special someone, the Golf Shop can cater to your needs and bring you some special ideas you’ll see below. Also, be on the lookout for our annual Toys for Tots Toy Drive and Raffle.

Thanks go to all the Ligonier club staff for supporting the Ladies Golf Association:

Bill Elliott and his team including Blade, Haley, Beth, and everyone else that made our Tuesday lunches and other special event meals possible.

Sean Knaus and the Pro Shop staff for organizing our tee times on Tuesdays, Thursdays, and the weekends.

As your Golf Chair, I would like to extend my personal thanks to Sean for his efforts to make this and previous seasons so stressless for me.  You are aware that when Sean became the Head Pro, I had been playing with the 9-holers. At the beginning of this year, I went looking for the balls we had previously used to make up the Tuesday teams.  With a very puzzled look on his face, Sean said “What balls?”  It was the first time I learned that Sean had been making up the teams and providing score cards with handicaps for each Tuesday’s game.  This year he introduced the bulletin board announcing the teams and starting holes.  I truly appreciate his commitment to making the Ladies Golf Association a success.

Congratulations Ron!

Congratulations Ron Shannon on your hole-in-one on hole #7 on 10/21/2022!

From the Pro ~ October 2022

Dear Members,

The colder temperatures have arrived and soon we will see the spectacular fall foliage at LCC. Although the temperatures will start to fall and the nights will be shorter, there is still many days of Golf to play. The greens have healed perfectly from aerification, and they will only get better with grass not growing as fast.

September had its ups and downs, but our 5-Person Scamble was once again a hit. We sold out with 100 players and had a fantastic day. Sean’s Folds of Honor Marathon went as planned and he was able to get 100 holes and raise another $1,400 for the foundation!

As said, October is still a great month for Golf, so be on the lookout for our Guest Specials and come participate in our (3) remaining Golf Events. (Bucks & Does Mystery Night, Ray’s Revenge & our Pumpkin Par-3.

Lastly, now is the time to start thinking about those holidays’ gifts. If you have something in mind for that special someone, the Golf Shop can cater to your needs. Also, be sure to check out the below sections with some great holiday gift ideas!
